This year was surprising in so many amazing ways. I never could have predicted that this year's highlights would contain half of the things it does.

Mochi and Pekoe are now 7 months old and are almost full-grown cats. They've transitioned to the move pretty well, although the first couple days saw two terrified kitties hiding in my closet.
